    Yes that's why I was very general with the "suicide" episode because part of what makes the episode so great is the inital reveal. Anyways we will just have to agree to disagree about satoshi kons use of shonen bat in the later half of the episodes. In the spirit of skullbrain maybe we should start an unreasonable beef over it.

    Last word b4 the lock. Insert PICTURE OF SMUG LOOKING BRITISH BUTLER FROM THE 30s POLISHING A SPOON WITH AN ALL-CAPS QUOTE FROM EIGHT IS ENOUGH AT THE BOTTOM meme.


    Turns out I'm having a look at Undone instead. Apologies.

    I forgot how good perfect blue was. I think when I first watched it I was a teen with... a little less empathy. It was a lot more intense than I remember. Who does scene transitions better than kon?
    Have you guys tried serial experiments lain? I need to give that a rewatch soon. I think I tried a rewatch when the director died but it didn’t hook me like it did the first time. I’ll also throw out a little known gem “trava fist planet.” He’s the guy that made redline but that felt a little overworked to me. The shape design and animation quality is top notch. He also worked on “dead leaves” which I’d recommend if you end up liking trava.

    Dead Leaves is the batshit one with the TV-headed guy, right? I haven't had a look at that one in a *long* time! That's the only work of his that I've seen, I think, but I remember his name being associated with Funky Forest, another one that's on my miles-long list of things to revisit. My favorite guy from that scene that I discovered in the aughts is Masaaki Yuasa. His Mind Game has been in my top 10 from any country, genre or film style for years and years. I really need to dig out my rips of Kaiba and The Tatami Galaxy, two series that he did for Madhouse; I'd (re)binge either of those tomorrow if I've still got them! I'm a few years behind on tracking his stuff, but I know he's still above the ground and working, so I'm sure some new gems are out there.

    Okay, Trava is on the list now, thanks.

    SB is nothing if not the Kingdom of the Derail, but maybe we should meet back over in the anime thread. Or schedule a synchronized Kon marathon with a scrolling chatbox for 'brainers on the side.

    Fun fact, this was the 2nd anime I was introduced to in middle school right after Princess Mononoke.....and then it was straight on to Vampire Hunter D


    Edit: on a side note, the new Creepshow series started on Shudder this week. The first episode is a lot of fun! Check it out, especially if you loved the original Creepshow movie. Plenty of easter eggs.

    Funny, too. I'm loving how, as with something like Linklater's Waking Life, the visual approach allows for the casually impossible to be utterly believable.

    I stepped in blind, so discovering both the format and the actors as they show up in the story has been a genuine treat. Just hit the carrot scene (!) and had to take a little break to let it soak in.

    @toothaction Your reminding me of how much stuff I need to watch rewatch. A lot of good recommendations. I totally forgot about mind game. Studio 4c worked on a lot of great stuff.

    Undone looks decent, but I keep getting so many ads for it that it's turning me off from giving it a go. I've just been associating it with something annoying.

    The Chernobyl mini series on HBO is done well and worth a watch if you don’t mind something a little darker, not like you need to lose any more faith in humanity.

    Something else I put off for a long time then finally binged on Hulu is “What we do in the Shadows” I love the movie so much so it was weird getting used to the series cast at first but it pays off if you stick with it!!!

    The psychic vampires! A great addition to the cast. Brilliant idea to flesh the series out.
